ArtWeek is Coming to Boston!
This year’s festival is slated for April 26-May 5th. If you’ve never been, its a great way to celebrate art in Boston and beyond! Presented by Highland Street Foundation and produced by the Boch Center, ArtWeek is all about raising awareness of the creative economy in the community. ArtWeek partners with the Mass Cultural Council and the Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism to recognize and promote art in the Boston area.
So what can you see at ArtWeek, where do you find the exhibits and how much is admission? I’ll answer the last question first. Many events are completely free! The ones that aren’t free are usually less than $50 a person. ArtWeek and all its generous partners have done everything to make sure this festival is accessible to everyone.
Here is a list of where and how you may see and experience ArtWeek 2019:
- Newbury Street
- Boston Public Market
- The Greenway
- Boston Commons
- Omni Parker House
- State Library of Massachusetts -Eustis Estate -Prudential Center
Experience the Culinary Arts
ArtWeek celebrates food! Restaurants in the area will be crafting specialty foods and cocktails, inspired by the art of their choice! I wonder what will be the highlight this year… Zakim Zoodles or Bunker Hill Benedict? Who knows! Go and find out! If you’re curious about who has been featured in previous ArtWeeks, here’s a website where you can see which restaurants that participated in last year’s ArtWeek.

The Art of Landscape
Light Up the Night is a beautiful way to enjoy the city’s landscape! All across the city certain iconic buildings and landmarks will light up and offer a visual celebration of Boston. It’s pretty cool on a regular week. you can imagine how much better it will look during ArtWeek! Imagine the Pru, the statehouse, and Zakim demonstrating an amazing amount of creativity during ArtWeek. Not something to miss!
ArtWeek on the Road
In association with Clear Channel, the Boch Center decided to feature selected artist on billboards all throughout the city. Guest curators choose the artists. Imagine if you were an artist and learned that your art was about to be featured for an entire week in Boston!
Contributing $2.2 million in support with advertising and various promotions media partners have given way to the huge success that ArtWeek is. The event has received accolades from Boston Globe, Americans for the Arts and many more.
